Default SOOO BIG got rid of his suspenders

Yup, yesterday I installed 3/8 Chrome belt trim on SOOO BIG. With his "big boy belt" he no longer has to wear suspenders.

I used the 3/8' trim because it fits nicely under the hood trim.

I've always thought the Chrome belt trim was something Chrysler overlooked on our PTs. Now SOOO BIG's a happy boy!

Whadaya think?

Happy Ptin', ptprice

Looks GREAT, Price. I think you're right about Chrysler overlooking it.

Looks great! I did the same to mine about a week ago. That little bit of chrome does a lot to make it look classy.

I like it but would not go further than the front edge of the doors. Or perhaps just 2/3 of the way forward on each side like old cars.
The Big Cruiser looks great!

Pasadenahotrod03Dreamer, I intended the 3/8" chrome trim to define the PT "belt line".

The last time I looked to my mid section, my belt went all the way around. If I had a belt that only went to the "front of my doors" my pants'd fall down. Not a pretty sight!

I was just replacin' SOOO BIG's suspenders. He was havin' the same problem!
